Rosie Riveters Gum Springs Program (3rd-5th Grade Girls) | Gum Springs Community Center | Monday, 08. July 2019

At Rosie Riveters we believe that doing is how you learn. When you let children solve problems on their own, they learn to be more independent. With the confidence to fail you arm yourself with the tools to win! Rosie Riveters is a non-profit organization that develops participants confidence, problem-solving and critical thinking skills through our hands-on and interactive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) projects. 
The Rosie Riveters Gum Springs program is a two-part program (summer and school-year) specifically for those who are enrolled in Fairfax County NCS summer and afterschool programs. 
During the course of this FREE program, participants will explore everything from hydraulics and circuits to polymers and biomechanics. In addition to an educational overview of a STEM concept, participants will engage in an interactive and hands-on building project that explores that concept. 
Space is limited. Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity. Register Today!
